The IIPT 25th anniversary commemoration is in support of the “World War I Centenary” with its theme of “No More War” and takes place:

Miss Dhuyvetter remarked, “I am very honored to be introducing these important peace makers during this time of the 100 year commemoration of World War I. It is a very personal story for me as my father was 12 years old when the invading army came in and took over his home in Belgium.” Dhuyvetter will be returning to Belgium directly after the event to produce a number of short documentaries.

Among the recipients are: Zoltan Somogyi, Executive Director, Program & Coordination, World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), will be a featured speaker and in addition Geoffrey Lipman, President, International Coalition of Tourism Partners (ICTP): Elke Dens, Marketing Director, Visit Flanders; Ivy Chee, Regional Director – East Asia, Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA); and Nigel Pilkington, Director, Public Relations & Communications, Skal International. Speakers will share their perspectives on “Building a Culture of Peace through Tourism.”

IIPT Founder and President said, “IIPT is most proud to support the Great War Centenary with its theme of ‘No More War’ – and to welcome Zoltan Somogyi and other leaders of the travel and tourism industry to our 25th anniversary event. As one of the world’s largest and fastest growing industries, the collective voice of travel and tourism leaders can be a powerful force for peace and justice in the 21st century.”
